E-Book formats available for all Stotrams

Added e-book versions for all stotrams in the Vaidika Vignanam site in two most popular formats – epub (compatible with ipad, iphone, ibooks, android, etc.) and mobi azw (compatible with kindle) under the ‘Multimedia’ page for each stotram.

For example, e-book versions for Vishnu Sahasra Namam can be found under http://www.vignanam.org/veda/sree-vishnu-sahasra-nama-stotram-media.html.   The specific e-book files can be downloaded for any language using the given links on the page, so that you can view them later on your ipad or kindle or any other tablet or mobile phone.

One advantage with these ebook versions over the pdf files, especially while viewing with mobile screens. is that scrolling and increasing/decreasing text size become easier, while pagination happens automatically depending upon the specific options you set.  We plan to release official ipad/iphone/android/windows phone apps for the site soon, which take care of all such issues and many more.   In the meantime, you can use the e-book versions for easier reading on your mobile screens.

If you know ios/android/windows phone programming and would like to help with creating the apps for the site, please contact us at sri@vignanam.org.

    Awesome! Srinivas. I have been waiting for this to come out. Excellent effort. Just one suggestion, if possible try to use some other font for devanagiri. The mangal font does not read well, in the sense it is not as good as some of the printed fonts…

      Hi CK, what a surprise to find you here.. Regarding the fonts, I don’t choose any single font, since I am not doing any decoration to the text. I am using plain unicode text and each OS renders the text in the fonts that it has. Or may be I don’t know how to really change the fonts. I’m also working on a mobile version of the page, which I’ll post soon.
